romney fights back and putting president obama on defense? >> mr. president you are entitled to your own airplane and your own house but not your own facts. >> gretchen: what did he say as i drop my papers. both so you can decide. >> steve: president obama raising taxes is the only way to dig america out of the ditch. >> it is not possible to come up with enough deductions and loopp holes that affect only high income individuals math. it is aryth metic. >> steve: really. governor romney said cu. >> brian: this might ease your fears. free flightts to leave the country if your guy goes down. "fox and friends", we are up and we are on right now. ♪ ♪ "fox and friends". >> congratulations to you mr. president on your anniversary. i am sure this is the most romantic place you can imagine, here we me. i like pbs and big bird and you, too. i will not spend money borrowing from china to pay for it. >> american people have to ask is the reason governor rum rhumb all of the plans because they are too good. >> look, i have five boys, i am used to people saying something that is not always true a
this is all policy. the president could be on the defensive talking about jobs, talking about debt. what they are looking at is sort of, sometimes, you know, a good defense is the best offense. so they want to go after mitt romney on these very same issues. they say that when you look at mitt romney's plan, even though he doesn't have a record as president, the math just doesn't add up. listen to stefanie cutter. >> he will will say he is going to cut the deficit, please. he wants $2 trillion in new defense spending that the pentagon didn't ask for. a 5 trillion-dollar tax cut wealthy that he won't say how he will pay for. >> i spoke to two different officials with the president, he said he was very calm, very cool, getting downtown in his hotel right now. remarkable to be calm this calm right now knowing so much is on the line, shep. >> shepard: a lot in deed. ed henry live in denver. let's bring in chris wallace. have you spoken to both camps today, what did you learn? >> i have been working the phones trying to get a preview and the most interesting thing i learned is that the romney
getting squeeze. let's go forward to january 1. that's when defense department cuts are supposed to take place. 60 days in advance that november 2, warning notices are supposed to go out from contractors to their employees saying here comes some layoffs. the administration does not want layoff warnings going off right before the election. so they said to people like lockheed martin. you don't need to send these layoff warnings out. they say they are hypothetical. lockheed martin says it is the law. we must send the out the notices. the administration says if you don't send out the warnings, then we'll indem anyify you, we'll cover lawsuits that might result if there are layoffs. so the taxpayer is on the hook for not sending out these warning notices. it's pure politics. martha: it's unbelievable, frankly. either we are going to have these defense cut layoffs as a result of sequestration because nobody in washington seems to be able to come together on a budget deal. don't they have to face the ramifications of that and say we are going to have these defense cuts and that means we have t
assured by the department of defense that they will not be subject to any major cuts. what's going on? tracy byrnes and ashley webster have the story next on fox business. before copd... i took my son fishing every year. we had a great spot, not easy to find, but worth it. but with copd making it hard to breathe, i thought those days might be over. so my doctor prescribed symbicort. it helps significantly improve my lung function starting within five minutes. symbicort doesn't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden symptoms. with symbicort, today i'm breathing better. and that means...fish on! symbicort is for copd including chronic bnchitis and emphysema. it should not be taken more than twice a day. symbirt may increase your risk of lung infections, osteoporosis, d some eye problems. tell youdoctor if you have a heart condition or high blood pressure before taking it. with copd, i thought i'd miss our family tradition. now symbicort significantly improves my lung function, starting within 5 minutes. and that makes a difference in my breathing. today, we're ready for whatever swims our
the domestic policy council. is obama really going to be able to articulate a defense on fiscal policy. i haven't heard him give any speech where he seems to be in the weeds on this. >> i thought he was a tough campaign strategist. >> now, look, if he takes my advice, which he won't do. i would talk about the following. i have a bill that all kinds of economists say would create at least a million jobs, congress won't touch it. >> i think that we haven't answered the funnel eed the fun question that -- if romney gets into this pro business thing, are we going to have inflation like your venezuelan idea? >> i don't care much about venezuela, although it looks like what's his name is going to lose, chavez is going to lose. i do remember argentina having been down there several times in in the 1990s, you buy all these bonds, you have a triple digit inflation rate. lee munson, thanks. >> i'm a bull, it's okay to be a bull. >> all right, the kudlow caucus is staying throughout the area. here's what we're going to tackle up next, the north koreans now, they say we're planning to inthey would them. co
that i got the sense that i thought not lay down but play defense. >> it reminded me of mitt romney debating in the primaries. how he would just stay back, let them all fight it out let them attack him and be impervious. but he was going up against a number of people. obama, if he adopted that strategy, he was going up against one person and it didn't work at all. what david was saying about 47% this is a silver lining thing but the 47% conversation leads itself to a town hall type of debate, which is what the next debate will be like. >> cenk: they'll come out much harder. please tell me that they learned their lesson. >> i think the president will come out, but romney has mojo now. he has confidence and he'll carry that into the next debate. >> cenk: will it make a difference. >> in the short term the debate will make a difference. i don't think it's an enduring change. even today you see the people first of all i saw a poll on cnn, 67% to 25% as we talked about. who are the 25% that felt the president won the debate. >> cenk: well, partisans. they're going to say obama won no mat
. but first from fox this friday night, chemical weapons on the move in syria. defense secretary leon panetta now confirms new intelligence now shows movement at some of that country's suspected chem al weapons sites. troublesome because syria's leader bashar assad has repeatedly proved he is willing to murder innocent civilians. and activists say 30,000 people have died during the uprising over the last year and a half. but secretary panetta says in this case, it looks as if the syrians are just shifting the chemical weapons to better secure them. and he does not note any evidence that the regime is preparing to actually deploy those weapons. >> while there has been some limited movement, again, the major sites still remain in place. still remain secure. >> we hope he is right. last month, president obama said his administration made clear to the syrian regime that if we start seeing a government moving around, quote: a whole bunch of weapons that would be a red line. so far there is no word from the white house about whether this latest movement means syria has crossed that red line. but t
about that? >> they did put out a spokesman in defense of ambassador -- statement in defense of ambassador susan rice yesterday. it stems from a couple of sundays ago. she was on some of the sunday shows, including "meet the press" where she gave that explanation that this protest in benghazi started off as a protest against an american installation there, about that anti-islam video that denigrated the prophet mohammed and then spontaneo spontaneously turned into something more and may have included elements of more organized elements. and that's something that republicans say that susan rice intentionally lied about, the spokesman saying last night from the white house, the administration has -- thinks that susan rice has done an extraordinary job. it was not her personal opinion that she was putting forth on those sunday shows. >> all right. mike viqueira. thank you very much for that. important story this morning. >>> to front page politics new this morning, mitt romney says he's looking forward to the upcoming presidential debates, first one's on wednesday. >> i think it
, blah. suppose obama goes on the attack tonight. suppose he surprises everybody and doesn't play defense. he doesn't try to handle his opponent and clinch, that he really goes and tries to put him away. and i think that's the significanti i significanting question. how does romney deal with the fact that he has no spontaneity? no ability to deal with the unexpected? how does he deal with that in the debate for an hour and a half? so will obama go after the guy, not play defense, not finesse the guy, knock him out and end this thing. and will the other guy be able to deal with the unexpected, which perhaps will be obama coming after him, not him coming after obama. >> chris, when you talk about the president potentially going after mitt romney, do you mean in terms of stylistic aggression, or do you means in terms of trying to nail him as a flip-flopper or going really aggressively against his policies. which do you mean? >> i would say this. you are promising something new. you keep saying i've got something new. everything you've said sounds like what we got rid of because we had a disa
there and be very defensive, as he was denied to the next few weeks will be very crucial with the election being rider on the corner. i totally support barack obama, and we will go through it to the finish line. >> i think president barack obama really held his composure. there may have been times that he wanted to get frustrated or upset that he really held himself. i commend him for not getting upset and showing his frustration. it is only the first debate and we still have the vice- presidential debate. the republicans should not get so uppity with this whole thing because it was the first debate. governor mitt romney had to really come out there and show himself because it has not been looking at good for him the last few weeks. i don't think president barack obama did anything wrong. i just look forward to the upcoming debates. >> this is ruby on twitter saying that governor romney needs to elaborate on what his complete ideas are. this is aaron in utah on the republican line. >> mitt romney gave a lot of courses that he would take. from personal opinion, i have observed that a lot of these
-- >> i know you do. >> and there's a great sports analogy. when you play the perfect defense when you have a lead, when you try to sit on the ball in basketball when you have got a lead, when you play conservative, what often happens is you lose the lead. and i can't for the life of me believe that that's what they did, but that's the only explanation. they told the president, don't be confrontational. they told the president, be above it all, act presidential. but the one thing that gets me when i was running for re-election as mayor and when i was running for re-election as governor and even d.a., i had a passion for what we'd accomplished. i had a passion to explain where we didn't ak plir something, why we didn't, what the road blocks were, and he could have done that without being aggressive, without being snarky towards governor romney. but he could have said, governor, you haven't been there. i'm in this office and when i took over, the nation's financial structure was about to collapse. i did some very difficult things and it turned this country's fate around. we've added jobs
and then a choice of how do you defend your policies. what we saw him unveil in defense of the tax cuts on wednesday night was identical to the bush defense of the tax cuts which gave paul krugman an aneurysm writing two clumolumns week saying this is bs. george bush would say are you kidding? cut taxes for the wealthy that's not what i'm interested in doing. >> sort of the explanation of mitt romney is more what andrew sullivan has said, that he's just a salesman. so if he's in front of audience a, the sell is this. if he's in front of audience b, the sell is that and he's doing marketing proposals for whatever audience is in front of them because the real mitt romney is just a businessman and willing to sell the product to whoever it is, whether left, right, thought of being an ultraliberal would get him to be president he would say that. i just need the 51% i need, get me what i need. >> now he cares about the 100% and channeling the specter of h.w. bush and adopting the trickle down government line which to me, howard, you can explain this to everybody, to me that was do i end up with the depart
's not on the offensive. he's on the defensive. >> bill: yeah. >> caller: with these republicans, you got to stay on the offensive. >> bill: absolutely. >> caller: come out with lie after lie after lie. and they're going to do it until it almost makes you believe the lie until you fact check. out on the stand he wasn't prepared. wait a minute. he had -- american people have voted him ahead of romney so far. so how could you get there and i hate to say it and just stumble like this? >> bill: you're not the first one to use the word stumble. glen said that in pretty -- in politico this morning. maybe he felt -- look, this thing's in the bag. i'm not going to blow it. by getting too assertive and too aggressive here but uh-huh. this thing ain't in the bag. far from it. not at all. and for millions of people last night, you know, we're into this all the time. okay? you and i. we do that every day. we do it for three hours every day. on radio and on television. so we're into all of these -- a lot of people watching last night
. and that's on offense. then you think about what he has to do on defense. he's going to be on the defense on the 47%. he's going to be on defense on his tax question. i mean, this is a guy who doesn't have very much to work with at this point. so it's hard for me to see, even if he doesn't make a major gaffe, which he does on a weekly basis, even if he doesn't, what ammunition does he have to actually have a good showing? >> i'm told there are examples of elections turning on debates, president bush for example started gaining on al gore when they faced off in 2000. is it usually the case that debates are quite the kind of game-changer that everybody thinks this one has to be for romney to do anything successfully in november? >> no, it's not. the historical data shows that i think we sort of exaggerate the role of debates. i would tip my hat to the washington monthly that has a nice article that goes through some of the political science and polling on this. it says they have a marginal impact. one notable exception was the 2000 debates between bush and gore where it appears gore pllo tw
due respect, but he also can't let that put him into a defensive posture where he doesn't -- i agree with karl rove, actually call out the president's policy. so i wouldn't phrase it as calling out the president, but calling out the president's policies. if he has a substantive debate about the president's economic policies and what has happened with them, then i think he stays in a very safe territory. >> richard, the obama campaign going pretty far to lower expectations over the past couple of weeks. a recent report on air force one, one of the traveling press secretaries asked by reporters what is the worst thing that could happen on wednesday night. her response, quote, well, he could fall off the stage. she we replied of the president. what do we expect from president obama in denver? is he going to be sharp or is he going to be rusty? >> look, i think he is going to be plenty sharp. remember, mitt romney spent all those debates, the 23 where everybody said he won 19 of them debating within a pretty narrow window ideologically. barack obama has been dealing with people all acros
. it is illegal for private stens to own guns for self-defense in eight states and the number is growing with increasing democratic control of state legislatures and govships. wrong. again, the second amendment is still intact and the number of new gun laws enacted by the obama administration adds up to exactly zero. finally, the prediction about how the president would respond to captured terrorists. quote, terrorists captured overseas are given full trials in the u.s. court system, and they have to be allowed access to a number of government secrets to prepare their defense. well, actually government secrets to prepare a defense, i don't think so. here is a secret for you, the top terrorist, osama bin laden, is dead. >>> no doubt if the president wins re-election those and other far right scenarios will get a new luster for the second term. because fantasy leads to more fantasy. >>> up next, the big debate last night between elizabeth warren and scott brown. well, who won that one? that was a top of the card. who lost and what does it mean for the battle sfor the senate? you're watchin
the president on the defensive about the last four years. he's got to adopt a tone, which is aggressive but at the same time respectful of the president, appropriately aggressive. you know, he's going to make sure he stays in economic issues and something he knows something about. the problem with romney's record is, he's taken almost every side of every issue in american politics. and if he has to be -- if he's made accountable for it, i think people will figure out very quickly th quickly, this guy has one for everyone in the politics. >> wes, national review reports on a plan to retool romney for debates. romney advisers have simply -- have a simple strategy. they want their candidate to balance his finely tuned arguments with personal warmth. he can retool it and can someone who's come off kind of aloof come off warm and fuzzy? >> i think gov more romnernor r trying to square away in his own head. when people can get a real gauge as to who you are and where you stand on things. and i think governor romney, this is also coming off the heels of two different things, this debate. one,
, distracted and defensive. what happened? >> i mean n a word, he blew it. it is not the same as blowing a campaign. i think part of it was expectations and romney did much better than expectations. but beyond that, he let romney get away with accusing him of being the one who is undecided on big banks, on being the one who would let people lose their health insurance, of being the one who didn't care about the little guy. and essentially obama didn't push back. he didn't whack him. i think that's going to have to change in future debates. >> one of the questions going into this was how aggressive would mitt romney be. and he challenged a lot. let me play just a little clip to get your take. >> and congratulations to you, mr. president, on your anniversary. i'm sure this was the most romantic place you could imagine here with me. you said you would get a deduction for taking a plant overseas. look, i have been in business for 25 years, i have no idea what you're talking about. i maybe need to get a new accountant. >> the question a lot of people asked, republicans particularly are, where
far is reacting to bain capital and the rest of it. which 'puts them on defensive and having them play obama's game. i think romney probably needs to go in there with a thought out piece by piece critique of barack obama's economic policies linking him to the weak economy that he has presided over four years. i say that because my sense, paul, there are a substantial number of voters. people lo say i think i'm going to vote for president obama. i don't feel that strongly about it, but i don't think mr. romney has made the case with me. i wish i could hear him out before i make up my mind. this is the opportunity to do that. >> paul: that obama narrative is disaster. don't let mitt romney who is just like george bush brings you back to the disaster and some people are buying that narrative. reluctantly because i think romney has not connected obama's policies to the pain they feel? >> forward looking, the president he would be and let him present to the people what the disaster would be in the second term for obama. what would be the case. he doesn't have to worry nice guy and all this.
a 5 trilli$5 trillion. -- another $2 trillion in defense spending. >> just three days into the first presidential debate, meanwhile mitt romney is off to the trail. we have two reports, we begin with nbc's peter alexander, he's with the romney campaign in boston, with a good morning to you, peter. what are you hearing about all the debate preps today. he o'clock najs that this is an important opportunity in her debate. people have a tendency to focus on the small things, like the color of a candidate's tie or the dramatic one liners, which is his need to get across the big picture message. he says if he does that, he thinks he can be effective over the course of the next three debates and ultimately win this thing. we heard this morning from governor chris christie of new jersey, i want to play you another clip from new jersey this morning. chris christ >> and so they're going start tuning in on wednesday night and when they do, governor romney's going to lay out his vision for a better and greater america and better opportunity for all of our citizens, and i think that's when you're
general named eric holder who, in defense of and in support of his boss barack obama as president, has been engaged in this issue in a way that is unnecessary, unusual, and maybe too political for a sitting u.s. attorney general. your thoughts on that? >> i think holder has acted appropriately to defend the voting? er rights act. parts of 16 states with a history of discrimination, in the south, that have to get their voting laws approved from the federal government. those states have gone to court and tried to argue in favor of the laws on the laws have been blocked by republican judges in instances like the texas motor i.d. -- voter i.d. case. undern't pass laws the voting rights act that makes it harder for minorities to cast ballots. that is why the department of justice has opposed these laws. that is why federal courts have blocked these laws. to argue that it is eric holder versus the republican is an oversimplification of where the legal battle is at in regard to efforts to restrict voter registration drives, to cut back early voting, to purge the voting rolls and other things
was distracted, did he -- defensive, detached. >> reporter: frank said he should have become much more engaged. >> he dropped the ball. there's no way around it. >> reporter: having said all that, he also said that plenty of presidential candidates have rallied after a bad first debate. >> reagan came back in his second debate. >> reporter: and with that in mind he's very much looking forward to the next debate on october 16th. >> romney thinks he's on a roll now. he's going to keep that posture, i would pre excuse me. barack obama has got to have a completely different air about him. he's got to be a combatant, not a visitor. >> reporter: president obama and mr. romney actually have two debates remaining. one on october 16th on long island, and the last one six days later in flora. there's also one vice presidential debate a week from tonight in kentucky. derek. >> we'll be watching them all. cbs news has learned that investigators are looking into the possibility that a border patrol agent killed earlier this week died from friendly fire. nicholas ivie and two other agents came under attack
